Hi! I looks great and really got me started immediately. However, euroepan special-characters don’t work, neither is our qwerty-placement of special chars, such as “@”. And, I cannot get the mailverification to work.
Great project. Definatly will use it. But I have some questions: why in ‘spoken language ‘ settings there is no ‘latvian’? Also if I use name Krūmiņš – in tree view those non-latin letters disapears. Can You easely fix it?
This is pretty cool! Will there be multi-language version out ?

it’s so easy to use and yet it is so customizable and complete.

Keep up the good work

Martin Edenström and ctrnz: We are currently working on multilanguage/special character support and should have a fix for you in a few hours. We’ll need your help to test out alternate keyboard layouts!
Geni Team: Great – I can now see those non-latin characters! Thanks!
What about my another question – possibility to add my native language – latvian?
And once again – thanks for your effort!
